Kickstarter My Heart

For the first time in many years, I find myself with more money at the end of the month than when I started. So that I don't end up spending it all on LEGO: Dimension packs, please let me know if there are any good Kickstarter rpgs that I should be checking out.

Current State of Open D6

Stargazer's World has a nice summary of the current state of the Open D6 game. Doesn't sound like its going well, which is a real shame because WEG's Star Wars was, hands down, the game we played most often. For our group, it really hit the sweet spot between crunch and ease of play. I sincerely hope that WEG can pull its shit together.

This just makes me happy

It is my firm belief that Fantasy Island, Gilligan's Island, and the islands in The Prisoner and Lost are all the same place. A purgatory ruled over by a trickster god, who hopes that you will do well, but who has no pity for those who fail.

Video Hits Wed: Batman vs Superman - LEGO

The new Batman vs Superman movie is coming out next year. For those of you who can't wait that long, this is probably a pretty good summary of how that fight might realistically* go. The sequel works like all great second films, by expanding the cast and expanding the story in ways that feel organic and real. 

(*realistically being relative when you are talking about small plastic toys animated to act out an illustrated fantasy story aimed at children aged 8-13.)

Video Hits Wed: Kanye the Giant

There is literally nothing that a white man from Montreal Que can say about this clip that wouldn't make me sound wildly racist, except that I think Key and Peele are hysterical, and I love that they do so much geeky stuff.

Now I'm worried that what I just wrote sounded racist.

Video Hits Wed: Fargo Season 2

The first season of Fargo took me almost completely by surprise. I hadn't paid much attention to the press and the clips I saw just looked like a rehash of the movie. But holy smokes was it good, you betcha! Here is the trailer for season two, which I gotta watch if only because it is set in 1979.
